"Fletcher Alum's Novel Unites Fantasy and Family" - Tufts Daily article & interview

High praise for Chizine Publications and its authors at Publisher's Weekly blog "Genreville" by Rose Fox: "Chizine Press continues to hit the mark. I don't know what's in the water up in Canada, but it's turning out some great writers, and CZP is finding and publishing them with amazing alacrity. If I could subscribe to a publisher like a magazine or a book club--one flat annual fee to get everything they publish--I would subscribe to CZP."
